[texts]Quadrupeds - "Captain" Mayne Reid (1818-1883)
This is a fairly short book, but it certainly hits the spot, for its aim is to inform young people about the four-legged animals of our planet, and this it does very competently. Of course there is no reason why young ladies should not read this book: I am sure they would enjoy this just as much Reid's target readership, which was boys. There are 24 chapters, each dealing with a kind of animal. Sometimes an animal genus is given two chapters, for instance domestic dogs, and wild dogs...

[texts]The Young Voyageurs - "Captain" Mayne Reid (1818-1883)
The heroes are the three boys whom we met in "The Boy Hunters" where they were off on a search for a white buffalo, which their father had requested. Now, however, their father has died, and the only relative they have is an uncle who works for the Hudson's Bay Company, in the very north of Canada. The uncle sends for them, and sends his own son to guide them over the Canadian part of the journey. This is the story of their journey from their original home in the south of the U.S.A., many thousa...

[texts]Gaspar the Gaucho - "Captain" Mayne Reid (1818-1883)
This is another excellent book by the inventor of the Wild West genre. Set in South America, in Paraguay, the hero and his band of friends have many an adventure, just in the course of one voyage, or undertaking. They frequently get themselves into dangerous and risky situations, but always by their superior bush-craft manage to get themselves out of them after having practically died, or at least having seen their horses die...

[texts]Ran Away to Sea - "Captain" Mayne Reid (1818-1883)
Although this book seems to be very much like the sort of book Kingston wrote, it actually predates that author by a few years. It tells the story of a young boy, well brought up, who runs away to sea, despite his parents' wishes. Unfortunately he asks for a place on board a ship where many of the officers and crew are the vilest villains, and the trade they engage in is slaving, despite that trade having been banned half a century previously...

[texts]The White Chief - "Captain" Mayne Reid (1818-1883)
An exciting and well-written book by Mayne Reid based on his experiences during the war between America and Mexico in the 1840s. Reid took the title of "Captain" because that was what his men called him during that war, although he was never promoted to that rank. The importance of Reid's books with this background is that they were among the first in the Wild West genre.

[texts]The Hunters' Feast - "Captain" Mayne Reid (1818-1883)
The story starts in the city of St. Louis, towards the end of the summer of some year in the nineteenth century. Reid collects together a group of six men who would pay to take part in an expedition, camping and hunting, into the prairies. They take with them a couple of paid men, professionals who would give them very necessary guidance. They all make a pact that they would each tell a round of tales around the camp fire, such stories to be amusing and instructive...

[texts]The Desert Home - "Captain" Mayne Reid (1818-1883)
This was one of the first books that Mayne Reid wrote. Its action takes place in a central part of North America, designated a Desert. Some people set out to travel in this central desert, when they somewhat lose their way. Luckily they eventually spot the light of a farm-house, where they knock and receive hospitality. Their kind host and his family then explain to them how they came to live where they do, and what a lovely place it is...

[texts]Contribution to the Graviton Self-Energy from a Scalar Field - C. F. Richardson
The contribution of a scalar field to the graviton self-energy is determined to one-loop order in the approach of [1]. It is shown that the self-energy makes a small correction to the bare propagator and that the self-energy has the form required by gauge invariance and Lorentz covariance.

[texts]The Cosmological Constant is a Chemical Potential - C. F. Richardson
The statistical mechanics described by partition functions for quantum gravity that assume a finite number of degrees of freedom for a fixed finite spacetime region are discussed. It is shown that a cosmological constant arises naturally as a Lagrange multiplier needed to fix the 4-volume in the canonical ensemble and that in the grand canonical ensemble, the cosmological constant naturally emerges in terms of a volume normalized chemical potential as Lambda = -8 pi mu...

[texts]UV-Finite Gauge Theory and Quantum Gravity - C. F. Richardson
It is shown that UV-finite Lorentz covariant and gauge invariant quantum field theories can be constructed based on the premise that Lorentzian spacetime is emergent from a statistically averaged ensemble of discrete “pre-spacetimes” having Euclidean signature via a local Wick rotation. A continuum approximation to the underlying discrete theory is developed by expanding fields in terms of a finite number of eigenfunctions of an appropriate gauge covariant Laplacian...
